import a project from source files

sirdoalotsirdoalot Posts: 3Member
Hi all
I am having trouble opening a project that has been sent to me as source code on a cd
Keep getting errors of class not found or no corrosponding componts
which seem to be present on the cd
The cd contains various files in .pas .cfg .dof .dpr .drc .res .duc .ddp
and .dfm
The main form loads ok and 90% of all the other component seem fine
I have not done any programing in delphi before but have been asked to do a few mods to this data capture type programme I have succesfully built simalar programmes in VB6 and Java for mobiles.
Could any one point me in the right direction or sugest an answer to my problem

Many Thanks
Alan

    The only thing I can think of would be to copy all of the files to the delphi folder itself. It won't look for components on the cd. The DCU files need to be in the delphi folder and installed. I can run you through installing components if you would like.

    : I have tried copying dcu files into libarary and install component but it askes for pas files I think your offer of installing component would be usefully The source files I have been given are in three folders
    componets folder and two programme folders analize & controler but all of them contain all of the above files pas,dcu,res,,,ect
    Thanks for your reply

    Okay. last night i was playing with a custom component derived from the IDBaseComponent Class in Indy... and heres what i did: for each component, you have to open the.pas file, or the unit, and click on component on the menubar at the top. CLick install components, and then select the name of the .pas file you have opened. click okay, then compile. it should appear on the screen under the tab it is set for. make sure the dcu files are in the library also. if you would like to contact me via IM, my msn is u13_tryk_plyr@hotmail.com.
